Best news all week: starting this winter, the Broadway Farmer’s Market at Pike and Broadway goes year round. No more January – March hiatus. Hooray! CHS talked with organizers about the push to go year round on Broadway at the start of the 2013 season. Every week the market offers a fresh alternative to grocery produce, bread, cheese, cut flowers and more. Shop the market this Sunday and every Sunday, 11a – 3p.

Have something people should know about? Anybody can add Capitol Hill events to the CHS Calendar.

Weekend highlights:

Blitz Capitol Hill Arts Walk 

John Osgood, at Poco wine + spirits

John Osgood, at Poco wine + spirits

On Thursday, three art shows lean into Capitol Hill’s official holiday(tm) with Halloween/Day of the Dead themed shows. Opening at True Love Art Gallery is “Dia de los Muertos” art show featuring sugar skulls and more by favorite artists. Poco wine + spirits opens their second annual Day of the Dead group show featuring works by artists with a flair for the macabre. The Pine Box (a former mortuary! Haunted!)  features the creepy masks of Dean Hudgin’s “Faces of All Hallow’s Eve.”

FranHolt1 (861x505)Plenty of non-creepy shows provide balance, such as Fran Holt’s large scale carousel horse-themed large paintings at Ghost Gallery, the “Sweet Angels” polaroid show by Adrien Leavitt at Hard L, and the 20th Anniversary Exhibition: Northwest Focus at Photo Center Northwest.  Check out all of the art walk events and shows from your phone – the BlitzCapitolHill.com site is mobile-friendly and can magically tell you which shows are nearest to you.

Plus, don’t forget about the unveiling of the new Lamps Meninas installation as a former restaurant building on 15th Ave E is further transformed.

Momijigari Maple Viewing Festival

The Japanese Garden in the Arboretum highlights the beauty of the maple tree in fall with their annual Momijigari Maple Viewing Festival. You’ll still need to pay gate admission ($4 – $6, but once in docents will lead guided tours, there will be musical performances, plus an opportunity to make an art print using natural materials. Coinciding with the maple festival is the annual bonsai show, where you can marvel at a 6-inch juniper bush older than your mother.

More upcoming events… below.
